Information about Ararat Charter School Policies & Procedures

The Parent/Student Handbook offers information about our school policies and procedures in order to help parents and students have a successful school year. Our school staff is readily available should you have any questions pertaining to our handbook.

Our teachers will continue focusing on teaching our students the California state standards with an emphasis on how to apply them in a real world setting. Our students in K-5 will be continuously be assessed throughout the school year with our curriculum embedded assessments. Students in grades 3-5 will be taking the CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress). This state test will be assessing our students in their understanding of the California state Standards in ELA and Math. This test will be administered online and will require students to have typing skills in order to respond to questions in ELA and Math. Ararat Charter School will be working diligently with students during computer lab in order ensure that students have the necessary skills needed to take the test. More information will be forthcoming on how you can help prepare your child for the test. We would like to continue to collaborate with all Ararat Charter School families in order to help best meet the needs of all students.

Included are a list of all of our school’s policies, procedures, and legal mandates that must be followed in order to comply with District, State, and Federal laws. Please read this handbook carefully as it contains very important information that will answer many of your questions on a variety of topics.
